Editorial Reviews

Review

“Words can hardly describe how much I'm enjoying these affordable reprints of one of the five greatest comics series of all time.” (Tom Spurgeon - The Comics Reporter)

Poison River [contained in full in Beyond Palomar], a graphic novel by Gilbert Hernandez, gave me a master lesson in real writing. It was beautiful beyond words and violent and tender and heartbreaking. From that moment on, I knew what kind of writer I wanted to be. It's the great unknown novel of the 20th Century.” (Junot Diaz, author of The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao)

Format: Paperback
Readers of Gilbert H.'s fiction occasionally accuse him of lifting the slightly "mystic small town" aesthetic associated with writers such as Gabriel Garcia Marquez or william Faulkner, and not without good reason. I won't go into detail why this is one of my favorite books of all time, but I would like to know where Gilbert got his ideas, especially the bellybutton fixation and the walnut cracking.

I guess when i started reading these i liked the l.a. stories better than the mexican ones, and wanted them to be all about hispanic life in l.a. Over time though the characters in the mexican stories started to become better. Plus luba's got big boobs.
